Despite the big win and emotional night the Fenton team needs to turn its focus to their next opponent, head coach Mark Kos said. With 5 wins on the year the bison need one more to become playoff eligible and will need to go through conference rival Riverside Brookfield to do it. The Bison will be on the road for their final game in what Kos called the biggest game of their season.
